Description of problem:
I booted with 'acpi=off' and suspended my laptop by closing the lid.
Upon resuming, the keyboard does not work correctly. When the first
key is pressed, an unending stream of garbage characters is emitted.
I can't switch consoles, kill X, or reboot the machine via the keyboard.
Prior to upgrading to FC3, I was running FC2 with a vanilla 2.6.7
kernel, as well as a couple 2.6.9-acs. The above behavior would
happen under all 2.6.9 versions I tried (vanilla as well as ac3), but
2.6.7 was OK. (I never tried 2.6.8 for very long, I found that X
would die under load, but that's a bug for another day.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with ACPI disabled
4. press any key
5. watch madness ensue
